This site is located in a muddy zone near the mouth of Oakley Creek on the southern shoreline of the Central Waitematā Harbour. Mangroves fringe this site, which was first sampled in 1998 and has consistently recorded elevated levels of at least one metal. Currently, Oakley Creek is monitored every few years for macrofauna, mud content and metal contamination.
